Officials say a mislabeling caused workers with the Beaumont Water Department to bust a gas line Tuesday morning.
Workers at a site near the corner of Usan and Sarah Streets were repairing a water main just after 9 a.m. They say they cut what was labeled as a water pipe, but it was a gas line.
Firefighters with Beaumont Fire Rescue were called to stand by as the gas line was repaired. Some nearby residents were asked to shelter in place until the line was fixed.
